As Peacocks Dance and Crested Larks Sing, a Woman is Caught in a Sudden Rain

Rains. Woman, peacocks and other birds outside home in rainstorm with lightning flash.

Giving a gift begrudgingly in return for another gift is, of course, mere barter. Many families barter their way through life in this way, thinking they are giving. But such gifts are cold, the fulfillment is empty, and the law of karma pays discounted returns.
